#MondayThoughts No. 16: That’s Merciless!

The preceding week is a hassle in the news cycle.

The price of vegetables have increased up to threefold in a wet market in Metro Manila, the rice has been infested by weevils and galunggong, once a poor man’s fish, has been injected with formalin.

Before the President was away in the Holy Land and instead of mitigating the inflation (which he blamed Trump, though it should be his signature and his mouth), which was recorded so steep year-to-date at 6.4% last August, they void Sen. Trillanes’ amnesty.

I concur of what they say a “diversionary tactic.”

I cannot stand how media made a frenzy out of the Senate for the past few days.

I’m still waiting for CMFR’s verdict.


Another aspect of merciless is the new film: “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral” (Tarrog, 2018), the successor of Heneral Luna, which I will watch later this week.

The marquee on the nearest cinema is squished alternately with another famous film.

I felt sorry for those who watched a more popular blockbuster “The Hows of Us” than a historical, cinematographic, story-worthy film.


Is there any light shining on the horizon now?

Timow out.
